Chicago loses court challenge to vacant building registry:

Vacant buildings in foreclosure with mortgages backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac do not have to follow Chicago’s vacant building ordinance, a federal judge has ruled.

Just heard today at a conference that in response to this ruling they are now pushing for a STATE law in Illinois. My understanding is that it would cover foreclosed properties only, vs. any 'abandoned' property (which could included properties institutions haven't foreclosed on yet).

Stay tuned...
